    Summary

    They’re swirling down the drain of reality, the stopper pulled, the fears and Jon and Martin freefalling into the negative space outside existence, and there is everything and nothing at one and Martin’s holding Jon and holding the knife and then he’s holding nothing and then the knife is through him and then Jon’s back in his arms and he tries so hard not to let go, he can’t, not now, and Jon is all bright burning eyes and mummified in cassette tape and gagged with spiderweb and then--

    --and then Martin isn’t falling anymore. He’s dangling. Upside down, leg bound tight, staring down into the massive, unforgiving jaws (chelicerae, says Jon’s flat apocalypse-googling voice, from a memory that feels simultaneously ancient and like it won’t happen for many years, spiders’ jaws are called chelicerae) of what he can only assume is the Mother of Spiders.

    (Jon and Martin get separated. Neither of them is going to let that be the end of the story.)

    Summary

    After MAG 200, Jon and Martin go through the rift with the entities. This world, however, developed magic instead of Fear Entities and when the two clash, the Fears are the ones who seem to come out on top. With the assistance of Annabelle, they create a new institute with the purpose of curtailing the entities and protecting their new world, filled with new dangers, new beginnings, and many old reunions.

    Summary

    He can smell the scent of decay and somehow he knows he's drawing closer to the Gathering Spire. The intricate shining webbing that held it tall was hard to miss, and the flashing light from The Beyond could be seen in even the darkest of nights. Now, it was his only beacon in the swirling winds that surrounded him. He has to reach the spire. He has to.

    Summary

    Jon opens the door.

    Jon closes his eyes.

    And he weeps.

    (Martin ends just as the world does, his body crumbling under the violent, crying Eye splitting the sky open. The knife in his hand has fallen to the ground, red blood mixing with black ink. The web carved on the blade isn’t visible anymore.

    He has no hands, no arms, no mouth, no heart, but he knows he holds Jon against him until the end, whispering Love in his ear as they cry.)

    (Sasha looks up from the Institute's lobby, Tim gasping as their eyes lock onto the first floor's balcony just outside Elias Bouchard's office. And Jon looks back at them.

    His nose is bleeding and his eyes are feral when he walks down with a calm smile. Sasha doesn’t outright notice the scars littering his skin, scars that were absent only an hour ago, as she gapes back at Tim who seems one second away from fainting.)

    Summary

    Helen Richardson was a delightfully calm woman, most of the time. Helen the Distortion, however, could hold a mean grudge... Now, she holds one against Jon for letting her walk into the Distortion and becoming one with its messy cosmos.

    When Jon gets lost, he tries to follow the sound of music he knows so well and winds up stuck with the actual Mechanisms. Who Knew there are alternate universes?

    Summary

    The world has been transformed and now serves as a feast for eldritch, cosmic beings of terror.

    Summary

    When Jon became the Pupil he became something else. Something that was nothing like a person and was nothing like an Avatar. He no longer was a way to Feed or be Fed, he became a true part of Beholding, like a limb. Yet still detained in his human body, his humanity though fragile still clinging to it. His only containment of the last parts of humanity, holding his lover and trying to convince both of them that they would be alright.

    or

    Jon becomes a part of Beholding when he becomes Pupil and throws the entities off balance.

    Summary

    Walking through a hellscape is an odd kind of exhausting. Physical exhaustion was no longer a thing in this apocalypse, at least not unless a Domain so wanted it to be, but seeing relentless horrors put a toll on the Watchers that could not quite be identified but most certainly couldn’t be avoided.
    Honestly, Martin had had enough.
    “Jon, I want to take a break.”

    In this well-deserved break, they use the protective space of a picnic blanket to talk about their feelings, then manage to escape the Gaze of The Eye for long enough to rejuvinate.
    Basically, I'm just emotional about them and want them to be okay.

    Summary

    He is a person, trapped in a nightmare. He is a vessel, the holder of unthinkable power bestowed upon him- or perhaps stored within him- by Cthulhu with a crush. He is a conduit, the aperture through which untold horror was brought into the world. He is a tool, a treasure, a toy. He is the Archivist and the Archive. Perhaps Melanie was the most correct, when she called him the Ceaseless Watcher’s special little boy. He certainly feels small, in the face of the waves of all-consuming- obsession? Possessiveness? It isn’t love.

     

     

     

    Beholding is in love with Jon
